|''The Frank Sinatra Show'' - May 5, 1951|
I had previously uploaded about 24 minutes of this, but finally, I can upload the whole episode I have of "The Frank Sinatra Show". As You'd assume, it's a musical-variety series. In some ways, despite Frank's many talents, this show is a bit of a mess when compared with some other high-profile star series of the time. Guests include Dagmar and June Hutton. At first I thought this was one episode and a partial episode, but it seems to be a complete episode...

|Your Hit Parade: "Please Mr Sun" by Dorothy Collins (Classic TV)|
Clip from the classic TV show "Your Hit Parade", with fairly-obscure 50's singer Dorothy Collins singing the popular song "Please Mr Sun" live on national TV.
